Are very low-energy diets safe?

Very low-energy diets are sometimes recommended for people with a lot of weight to lose, but they need to be done under close medical supervision. Consuming a very low amount of energy can cause health problems, can reduce your metabolism and is strongly linked to binge eating. This means you can quickly regain weight once the diet ends.
